  1.  LOOKS GOOD IN HD

    Posted: 

    I saw this at the cinema in 3-D when it first came out and was left feeling slightly let down by the whole experience the 3-D was very average compared to other films I had seen and maybe this took the edge of the film for me.
    My copy arrived yesterday through the post from Play.com so we sat down to watch the Blu-Ray version last night and I enjoyed it a lot more than my cinema experience.
    Without the 3-D glasses on I got to enjoy this film for what it really is a big no brainer blockbuster, Yes it is not as good as the original film due to the back story being altered a little bit to much for my liking but the special effects are superb in this version and it really is one of those pop in and tune out films.
    I found the picture and sound to be spot on and in this great value for money set you get a DVD copy and the Digital copy that you can download and put on your iPhone to take with you wherever you go.
    If you like big budget special effects filled no brainers than this is a great film for you but if you like a bit of a story to go with your action than you might find this version lacking what your looking for.

  2.  KILLERS

    Posted: 

    I had seen lots of mixed reviews for this film but decided to give it a go as Katherine Heigl is generally very funny in most of the films she has been in.
    The film is very slow to get going it takes a good 40 minutes before we get into the action but once the action begins it comes at a decent pace thick and fast.
    Ashton Kutcher plays a CIA agent who after meeting Heigl decides to give up the dangerous life and settle down.
    After 3 years his past catches up with him and his quiet suburban life is turned upside down when a contract is taken out on his head.
    The action scenes are quite good but the comedy is a little low on the ground with the best moments coming from Heigl.
    It was good to see Tom Selleck back on the big screen again and he delivers a solid performance, The film is slightly predictable and you will probably figure out the ending but it is a easy watch film that does not really require a lot of thinking about and is worth giving a watch.

  4.  I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER

    Posted: 

    I went to see this at the cinema last night and I was not left disappointed by this all action blockbuster.
    I grew up watching the T.V series in the 80s and used to love the episodes, This film does hold a few similarities to the T.V series but if your waiting for them to be locked in a barn with a welding torch and scrap metal and five minutes later come out in a tank then you might be left disappointed by this film.
    The casting for me was quite good Liam Neeson does a great job as Hannibal Smith and I thought District 9s Sharlto Copley does a decent job as madcap Murdoch.
    Bradley Cooper does a good attempt at Face and of course replacing Mr.T was always going to be a tough job and Quinton Jackson gives it a good go as B.A but still seems to be missing the craziness that Mr.T brought to the role.
    The plot is very simple and the film relies on its superb special effects and great stunts to deliver and if thats the kind of film you enjoy a simple no brainer blockbuster that is packed with visual treats then this is the movie for you.
    Like in the T.V series The A-Team have been set up for a crime they did not commit in Iraq, They escape from federal prison and go about clearing their names with the help of the lovely Jessica Biel who plays Sosa the Army officer charged with bringing the fugitives to justice.
    This is a brilliant summer blockbuster that has great special effects and the action starts from the first minute and does not let up until the film ends, This will be one of those films that gets huge divided opinions some will love this all out action blockbuster and some will slate it for being to different to the original T.V series the best way to look at this film is that it is named after the old T.V show but this is a new movie for a new generation.

  6.  VALUE FOR MONEY

    Posted: 

    This set is amazing value for money not only are you getting Mileys new album which is great by the way the songs are more mature and you can really see and hear that Miley is growing up and this comes through in her music now.
    But for me the real gem is the DVD that you get with this set for just a fiver more than the single disc version, The DVD comes loaded with all the hits from Mileys sell out U.K tour last Christmas we were lucky enough to get to go and see her at Manchester and she was out of this world so to get to see the concert again was great.
    I cannot recommended this enough to you it is a great album and a great DVD dont think just buy this amazing value for money set.

  7.  FANTASTIC BOXSET

    Posted: 

    What more can you ask for at such a superb value for money price.
    Just nine quid gets you all 3 of the Shrek films, We got this recently and we soon worked our way through all of them before we went to see the newest one at the cinema.
    The thing for me that makes Shrek so good is that there really is something for everyone here the jokes are superb as the adults get them on a different level to the kids, The animation is fun and the voice talents of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz make you just love all the characters.
    If you have never seen these films then you must buy this great set for this price and if you have seen them but not got any of the films than this is the best way to get the complete collection in one go.

  8.  THE GAMES AFOOT

    Posted: 

    I really enjoyed this take on Sherlock Holmes Guy Ritchie has put a decent spin on the legendary detective and Robert Downey plays him very well and I was also very surprised by how well the usually rubbish Jude Law did as Doctor Watson.
    The story moves along at a decent pace and of course it keeps you guessing right up until the very end like any good mystery film should.
    The Blu-Ray transfer is very crisp, clear and sharp and the sound is spot on as well.
    This set also represents great value for money as you get the Blu-Ray, DVD and a Digital copy all for sixteen quid.
    Well worth buying to add to your Blu-Ray collection as this is a great set for the money and a very good film to boot.

  9.  PURE DISNEY MAGIC

    Posted: 

    We went to see this as a family when it was on at the cinema and i must say this is a superb Disney classic.
    The story is great fun the animation is crisp and clean and the songs are brilliant and it feels more like the fantastic 90s Disney animations rather than some of the more lacklusture classics of recent years.
    It is family friendly fun and there really is something for everyone to like here the younger kids will enjoy the songs and animation and the bigger kids will enjoy the gags i know i did.
    A great film for the entire family we have watched this a few times now and the Blu-Ray quality is superb the picture is so crisp and clear i would highly recomended this release for anyone.
